Integrated Care Providers is the new term for ‘Accountable Care Organisation’ and describes the proposed agencies that will be commissioned to deliver health and social care in a coordinated way for a ‘local’ population.
 
NHS England has launched a 12 week consultation on the contracting arrangements for Integrated Care Providers (ICPs).  The consultation provides more detail about how the proposed ICP Contract would underpin integration between services, how it differs from existing NHS contracts, and how ICPs fit into the broader commissioning system. 
 
The consultation document and supporting package of materials are available at: www.england.nhs.uk/new-business-models/publications/consultation-contracting-arrangements-for-icps/
